Felix Wong making Forward Progress

Racer update about:
Hi this is Felix Wong calling at 1:18 on Saturday, July 5th. I’m now in El Rito, NM. Things are going well. After I got the cyclometer in Chama, my spirits have been way up. My legs have been feeling very good. Very strong yesterday, maybe not quite so strong today. I got into NM yesterday finally and the trail was very rocky, very rolling, steep in some sections, very rutted. However, I thought it was actually quite fun to ride on. Any day when I’m make forward progress as opposed to trying to solve problems or dealing with hypothermia is a good day. Its great to be putting on some miles and making some forward progress again. I hope to be doing triple digit mileage for the duration of the race. We’ll see. The next section coming up is going to be very difficult. Probably most difficult part of the race. I think my legs I’m feeling up to it. I’m going to get some supplies right now, some food. I’ll be on my way. We’ll see how far I can get today. Bye. (recorder time: 2008-07-05 14:22:15 EST)



My first post here. I'm a closet Blue Dot Junkie and TD wanna be. I've been "watching" the race since it started and must say that all the riders have inspired me beyond words. Felix you have endured much and just keep on going. I'm sure the internal rewards will be more than worth it as you reflect on these weeks later on. To all the racers God Bless and thank you for inspiring a flat lander to get back up into the "hills".
